This time of the year allows us to get together with most of our family and friends. In my opinion, this is a great opportunity to observe what kind of an influence those people have over our lives. Friends and family are great sources of joy or frustration. It is important to know each is each in order for us to be confident about the lives we have.
Think about how you feel when you’re with those people. Do you feel the same with everyone? If not, why so? Can you tell which of those interactions help you and which don’t? In order to be great, we need to surround ourselves with greatness so it can sip into us. You cannot expect to have a healthy body if you only eat junk food, can you? The same thing applies to our mindset as well. In order to have a great mindset, we need to surround ourselves with those types of mindsets, otherwise the change is not possible (this is why I try to learn as much as I can from the people that have the type of mindset I want to have).
Are you surrounding yourself with greatness every day? Why or why not?
